Be a Light for Literacy

Did you know that many of the programs and resources of the Temecula libraries that you enjoy are made possible by the Friends of the Temecula Libraries? Public libraries are a phenomenal free resource that support communities and bring people together. However, funding is often limited. Friends of the Temecula Libraries is a nonprofit organization driven by members and volunteers who are dedicated to preserving and enriching libraries and promoting their welfare. We strive to enhance library resources and raise awareness of available services and programs.

Who we are

Friends of the Temecula Libraries raises funds to support valuable and engaging programs at the libraries such as the Summer Reading Program for children and other events for users of all ages. We provide money to the libraries to purchase new books, additional copies of current books, special equipment or technology, and other materials to create a more robust and enriching environment for the community. All of the proceeds raised from membership fees and through the used book stores at the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library and the Grace Mellman Community Library are invested back into the libraries. In addition, individuals and groups who make donations through Book Friends are recognized through customized book plates placed inside the books purchased with their gift. Book Friend donations are matched by Friends of the Temecula Libraries.
